The ASI 482 MC Colour USB Camera is was recently released in 2021, an ideal camera for Planetary photography and viewing.
It is not recommended for primarily deep space photography, AOC suggest a fan cooled model for all deep space object long exposure photography.
The ASI482MC camera is one of the latest One Shot Colour (OSC) planetary cameras released by ZWO in 2021.
Packed with Sony sensor IMX482, this camera has a large pixel size of 5.8um, compatible with USB 3.0 interface, large full-well depth of 51.5ke-, extremely high sensitivity and super low read out noise.
After years of development and process in the field of planetary cameras, the 482MC is considered as one powerful iteration in the field of planetary cameras.
The 5.8um large pixel size allows unprecedentedly low SNR1s value of 0.08lx, which brings the camera a fantastic nickname – “The King of the Night”.
